    What's your Thinspiration?!

    What is inspiring you to lose weight?

    I have 5 reasons:

    - To be healthier in general
    - To be able to extend our family in the New Year
    - To be able to fit into a warehouse dress that I wore once 5 years ago for a special occasion
    - To wear and feel good in a new outfit at my best friends wedding in March 2015
    - To enjoy looking at photos of myself with my family

    Would love to hear everyone elses 'Thinspiration'!

    I will not be a fat bridesmaid!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    The hen is on this weekend and I hit goal last week. It has been my obsession since January. I was a fat bride. I have little interest in having my photos up around the house and I recoiled at my wedding dvd. It is gathering dust in some drawer in the house. My husbands sister is getting married soon and I'm maid of honour. I have a horror of being a big lump in those photos.

    I am totally with you here!

    I want my son to be healthy and be part of a healthy family. To be able to freely play with my son without being breathless or suffering with my aching back.

    Kids make everything achievable and worth every hurdle

    mine are:

    1) A wedding this sunday. People (fatter than me) were mean to me at the hen weekend and it'll be nice to show up thinner!
    2) Barbados! My daughter and i are going with friends the end of August. i will not be a whale while i'm there!!!
    3) Pride. I have no love for myself when i'm bigger than a 10. I hide away and disgust myself. So time to feel proud of my body and keep it as it should be. Small!
    4) My daughter. I dont want her to have a fat mom. I want her to understand the importance of nutrition and exercise.
    5) To shop in nicer shops, buy clothes, and STAY IN THEM! I always buy in primark becuase nothing stays in my wardrobe for long because i end up too fat for them. I'd like to buy a jacket for 100 and know it will be an investment as i'll be wearing it for years! lol
    6) To find me a man! Men are shallow unfortunately and seem to judge anyone over a size 10 as fat (sweeping statement there based on 3 years of being on my own and on MANY dates!). I'd like to be more active with a partner too (not just sex lol) so being smaller helps that.
    Week 1 - 5: -22lbs and -15.5 inches
    week 6 - 10: -11lbs and -12 inches
    Week 11 - 15: -10.5lbs and -12.5 inches
    Week 16 - 20: -5lbs and -6.5 inches
    Week 21 - 25: +8lbs and +4.5 inches (Barbados)
    Week 26: +5lbs and -2 inches (last cwp weigh in 12st7lb)
    Week 27: -6lbs (12st1lbs)

    Total Loss: 41.5lbs and 44 inches

    We are.

    We can't help it - we're simple creatures!

    I'm the exception of course! I'm on Cambridge after all - I know what a mind-f**k (excuse the language - but it's the best way I can put it) being heavier than you want is. I value wit, intellect and humour..... because I have none of those

    That said, from a looks / body point of view, I still fancy Helen Mirren (I'm 38 FFS!), love to see women with a woman's body and curves in all the best places! I dislike seeing women with figures like wee boys!

    There you go - from one of the only blokes on the forum


    My thinspiration:

    (1) To be a dad my kids are proud of on the beach in the summer!

    (2) To not look like the hideous lump I pictured in boxer shorts in the mirror on 3rd April

    (3) To feel good about myself - I mean really good about myself

    (4) To not get knackered too easily with physical activity - kids, sports, walks, otherwise(!)

    (5) I used to play rugby league - I want to look something like the clip I saw of myself on Sky Sports a few weeks ago.... 11st 7lbs and toned. That was only 6 years ago

    (6) To fit into my clothes - everything was too small

    (7) To buy a wardrobe of new clothes - for the right reasons, because everything is too big

    (8) To not feel like the life is being sucked out of you because every time you look in the mirror you think "fat b**tard", making you miserable beyond belief

    (9) To enjoy food (I love good food!), enjoy it in moderation, taste and savour the food, and not treat it as a comfort blanket.


    There. Most of them are for me to be honest - I just want this. Badly!

    For me I just want to feel comfortable in my own skin. That means having clothes that fit and being able to go into shops without getting that look from the sales assistant. To enjoy all those physical activities I've always loved doing but struggled with.

    I'm sure over time this has and will change. But as long as it's done that's the most important thing to me.
